Edsel - Thanks for the reply... I always enjoyed the hot summer day concert experiences of my youth, and that's kind of what prompted my question. The experience FEELS different in the hot sun, and I like to think that translates into a different sound (whether good or bad). Not being a musician/performer myself, I appreciate your perspective!

ahh yes, "thick air".

During the recording of Anthem Of The Sun, Producer Dave Hassinger bailed out part way through the process supposedly after Weir requested "the sound of thick air" during Born Cross-Eyed.

"Anything below 45 degrees..the sound gets Thinner.... "

interesting statement...at neg 40 deg F (or C) the sounds i hear from the distant highway as well as other sources are indeed clearer and sharper, and at least seem to be a lot louder, but not necessarily any better...suppose this could be a result of the sound being thinned (?)


btw Sambonk, had a listen to your band a while back...you're a fine drummist!...although they're competent musicians and all, thought the bass and keys could have played out a bit more to take some of the weight off the guitarist...didn't help matters that the guitarist was also up quite high in the recording mix

just my .02, all things considered, great to hear people playing the music they believe in, jam on!
